SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- June 24, 2013

McAfee today announced that leading research firm Gartner, Inc. has positioned
the company in the leaders quadrant in its “Magic Quadrant for Secure Web
Gateways” as published on May 28, 2013*. Gartner’s research examined leading
companies offering Web gateway solutions that utilize URL filtering, malware
detection and application control technology to protect organizations and
enforce Internet policy compliance.

According to the report, “Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales
and mind share growth) with established track records in Web gateway security,
as well as vision and business investments, indicating that they are
well-positioned for the future. Leaders do not necessarily offer the best
products and servicesforevery customer project; however, they provide
solutions that offer relatively lower risk.” In order to be included in the
report,vendors must provide all three components of a secure web gateway: URL
filtering, anti-malware protection and application control capabilities.

“Our leaders position in the Magic Quadrant confirms the McAfee approach to
securing the Web,” said Pat Calhoun, general manager of the network security
business unit at McAfee. “The McAfee Web Protection solution offers the
advanced security, control and malware protection organizations need to take
full advantage of the Web. Combined with the flexibility to have on premise or
cloud-based Web protection with a single solution, McAfee Web Protection leads
the way in lower total cost of ownership.”

McAfee Web Protection Gateway delivers comprehensive security for all aspects
of Web traffic, regardless of location or device. For user-initiated Web
requests, McAfee Web Gateway first enforces an organization’s Internet use
policy. For all allowed traffic, it then uses multiple real-time techniques to
analyze the nature and intent of all content and active code entering the
network via the requested Web pages, providing immediate protection against
malware and other hidden threats.
